Macro photography with a plain kit lens
Technology has advanced quite far. As much as I like my legacy manual lenses, but the minimum focus distance is at least 25 cm. Back in those days, you had to buy a macro lens, an intermediate ring or a close up lens.
The kit lens of the Nex is capable of focussing very close, so with focal length set to 55 mm and aperture closed down to 8, you can get real close. The two sides of a coin :-) shown above have been cropped only in a minor way.
